Desireless by Eagle Eye Cherry opens with the relentless track “Save Tonight,” a song that not only grabs hold, but commanded my attention so much that I wondered if the second track would even stand a chance ... and with a wondrous stroke of luck, it does. “Indecision” is comfortably, yet oddly slowed down, sitting acoustic on top of electric guitar washes on an introspective Beatle-like number that continually unfolds right before my ears. But I’ve gotten ahead of myself, Mr. Cherry’s father was the great jazz artist Don Cherry, and the title track “Save Tonight” is a reworking of a song by his father. And then I begin to see what’s happening here as “Comatose [In The Arms Of Slumber]” flows out of my speakers drenched in a rich fullness, drawing me even more introspectively deep into the life of Eagle Eye Cherry as “Worried Eyes” mixes folkie acoustic blues with sensuous rhythms ... and now I’m face to face with the man himself; and if not the man himself, then with what he’s learned about revealing a body of work through the masterful guidance of his father, causing me to feel that I was lazily turning the pages of a magazine without really looking at them on a warm, sunny, September afternoon. A smile is crossing my face, because today is a beautiful, warm, sunny, September afternoon, and I’m sitting here half hypnotized, lost in both the music, my own life, and I’m thinking, “Man, it doesn’t get much better than this.”

I’m sure that I could quickly count the number of album’s that have held my attention so profoundly for the last ten years, and this is one of them. Yeah, I know I’m praising the release especially as “Shooting Up In Vain” rolls over me, allowing me to sense how good it would feel to be really high right now ... but I already am; on the music. And this feeling takes me back to the Rolling Stone review, where they gave the album all of one an a half stars, and goes on to say ... well, it’s really rather short, so take a moment to read it for yourself:

So much for genetics. As the son of the late avant-jazz icon Don Cherry and the brother of funk-hopping Neneh Cherry, Eagle-Eye Cherry carries a heavy legacy. Fans of the adventurous Cherry clan, then, will be disappointed by the lite-rocking Desireless, Eagle-Eye's debut album. Eschewing his sister's grooves in favor of mellow acoustic guitars, the youngest Cherry apparently hasn't met a Ben Harper song he didn't like – or rip off, down to the diluted Zeppelinisms of "Indecision" and the smokily ersatz Cat Stevens rasp he uses throughout. The mystical, corny lyrics, meanwhile, give Rod McKuen a run for his money – check out the head-scratching "Seagulls fly/When mermaids cry" chorus from "When Mermaids Cry." The album's most effective song is the title track – its Brazil-beat-meets-acid-jazz-meets-Santana-funk stands out amid the radio-friendly dross; then again, the song was written by Don Cherry and has no words, which helps. Desireless has one great achievement: It makes Dave Matthews Band sound positively edgy in comparison.

So here I sit on this beautiful fall afternoon, a stoner feeling rolling through my body, scratching my head wondering how Rolling Stone could have gotten this so wrong ... and so glad that I don’t gage my musical interests by such an outdated, star driven, used-to-be music rag. Desireless is a really great laid back collection of songs that fold effortlessly into and out of each other, conceptualizing and presenting exactly what I feel Eagle Eye was attempting to convey. There’s an easiness to each song, as if they’ve just tumbled out of his pockets ... I’m feelin’ every note, and connecting with every lyric ... and then I remember that it’s been awhile since I took a breath.
